Excellent results - Lost 25KGS in 11 weeks

I have tried all flavours - enjoy the coffee and strawberry the most. I replaced breakfast and Dinner with the shake and had a portioned meal for lunch. Over 11 weeks I have lost 25kgs with this replacement shake which was combined with exercise everyday ,making a overwhelming weight loss for me.. I am still on the shakes as I would like to loose more weight and they are so enjoyable to drink. I highly recommend these shakes to anyone who wants excellent results ,Totally impressed with a awesome product.

Weight LostYes

too much sugar

The strawberry and chocolate were my favorite flavours but unfortunately i will no longer be buying them I have noticed it has 23grams of sugar in a 55 gram packet that is close to 42% of sugar in the whole Package This is crazy in a so called package Health program .I will no longer be buying these I would be just as well off buying a ctn of flavoured milk . Shame Aldi shame

Helping me lose weight

I have been using Slim & Trim for just over three weeks and I'm seeing good results around my waistline. I was reluctant at first because of the sugar content but eating one of these prevents me from picking at all other additional food I would have craved throughout the day and it works until my next meal or shake, I was eating a lot more than 23g of sugar the shake contains. I am also saving money I would normally spend on fast food and bakery food. Strawberry is my favourite but I like them all, and I am happy with the results so far!

Weight LostYes

Great product

Has definitely cut down our eating.good flavours and easy to make and drink.Have bought both the starter pack and loose packets.Find the individual packets deare but can select favourite flavours

Great taste

I have just started using this product, but so far I have to say I am enjoying it. There are several flavours to try: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and coffee. Hopefully I would loose some kg in the following weeks.

Updating: I have used this product for a week now and I feel very positive. I've been on a positive mood for the whole week using this product. It tastes great and does not give me a hungry-stomach feel at all. Would definitely continue to use it.

GREAT product!

I've experimented with diet fads for quite some time now, testing them out to see, first hand, the changes to my body! I recently tried the Slim & Trim range from Aldi and I loved the taste. For me, this substituted my meal throughout the day. I have tried all the flavours, and let me tell you, blended with ice, it makes for the PERFECT dessert. My favorite flavour was the Coffee one! Overall, great product, at such a competitive price!

I lost 16kgs in 10 weeks

I'm extremely happy with the results and they taste great I've tried all four flavours coffee,chocolate, strawberry and vanilla my favourite is coffee and chocolate.I use cold water to make the shakes.
I lost 16 kilos in just 10 weeks and that's with doing minimal exercise and walking.
I started with two shakes a day for the first week, one for breakfast and one for lunch a piece of fruit and whatever I wanted for dinner. I drank cold water in between if I got a little bit hungry.
From the second week I added carrot sticks cucumber sticks celery sticks and avocado dip as a snack in between. I'm a diet controlled diabetic all my levels are within normal range now and I'm feeling really great now.
I recommend these shakes to everyone that asked me how I lost my weight or anyone that's looking to lose weight.
I have maintained my weight loss for 6 months now.

Gluten free winner!!!!

After recently being diagnosed with caeliacs and having to go on a gluten free diet I could no longer have my celebratory slim shakes. Aldi slim and trim are perfect, gluten free, and tastes great. Depending on the day and my roster I have them for brekky, afternoon pickup or 3am during night duty..... feels me up when I'm looking for a real sugar fix. Better for me than a bag of lollies...

Taste great!!

I have tried all the flavours and so has my husband. They're easy and make us feel full. I blend the chocolate and vanilla with 200ml cold water, hand full of ice and a frozen banana and they thicken up like a thickshake. I've put raspberries and strawberries in the strawberry shake with the same effect. They do have a lot of sugar but 205 calories is still 205 calories. So unless you're a diabetic it wouldn't be a problem. The whole basis of weight loss is calorie intake and exercise. I would recommend these for anyone who wants to lose weight.

Can't live without these! The coffee is delicious!

As a time poor Mum with a 1 and 4 year old , trying to get out the door having eaten breakfast was a struggle in itself. I decided to try these in January for a quick breakfast on the go and of course to lose a bit of weight. I have continued having one everyday for breakfast and it is now August and I have lost 9 kgs!
I don't care for any of the other flavours but I am totally addiced to the coffee flavour.
For the people complaining about the sugar content in my eyes it may have a bit of sugar in it but it comes down to convenience for me and losing some weight on it outweighs the high sugar content. It has worked for me and fits in with my lifestyle so I highly recommend it.

A must have

I have only tried vanilla but I might branch out and try coffee as well this time
Best tasting meal replacement I have ever tasted. I have certainly tasted a few over my long life
Now I have left qld and in Tassie with no ALDI so every time I hear of anyone going up there I get them to bring me back an arm full lol

Sugar, sugar, more sugar!

Great taste, especially the coffee - so much sugar though! I would love for a sugar free version of this as that much sugar just defeats the purpose of having a weight lose mix!

Love the coffee.

Great shakes , great flavour , but sooooo much sugar. Please Aldi get us a low sugar shake. The chocolate and the coffee are by far the best , the strawberry and the vanilla are just too sweet for me.

Decent flavour

I have tried the vanilla and strawberry flavours, the vanilla is my favourite! I don’t think it is a very good alternative to meals though, I tend to use them if I am not hungry but should have something to eat.

Perfect meal replacement

I love them all I have tried all the flavours all very nice I enjoyed the taste very much I do think they are the best on the market at the moment

I love this product, I have it for Breakfast, sometimes for lunch or Dinner if I’m Not feeling hungr

I have had all the flavors, Chocolate,Coffee, Strawberry and Vanilla, And sometimes I might add a few fresh Strawberries into the Vanilla,for that little extra, and in the summer I have added some crushed ice cube, yummy.

Over a number of years I have used many different diet shakes. Some have been good others, blah. I t

I have tried the three flavours available at my local ALDI. Love them all. Have never cared for strawberry in other brands but these are really lovely.
You have a convert in me, ALDI

23 grams of sugar in one hit!!

Too much sugar !!!!!! Why why why ???!!! I mean its to reduce the waistline right? Or not? Very sad thought it would be a good alternative. But not !!


It's great it helps to have on you while your at work or school but I don't recommend using them alll the time it can fill you up and you can tend to forget about eating normal proper nutritional food because you are already full but it's a great tummy filler and tastes pretty good could taste better but it works!


Having been told I am pre-diabetic, my doctor suggested I needed to lose some weight by replacing one meal with a shake and controlling calories. So I went to Aldi to get Slim & Trim. Appalled by the sugar content. FAIL!

Questions & Answers

Many people trying to lose weight quickly have diabetes, among other health problems. A low sugar version of your slim & trim shakes would be appreciated. I have bought 4 sachets to try, but am worried about the effect on my diabetes management as there are 23g sugar in each sachet, which is an enormous sugar hit for a diabetic. Please consider making a low sugar alternative - less than 5g per sachet. Thanking you for your consideration. Mark.

Is it okay to put fruit such as a few strawberries into the shakes in the blender
2 answers
I add fruit to my morning shake and remember that I've used a fruit serve so I choose something else for my morning snack, like carrot sticks.do you know if it contains any form of sweetener. i cannot do artifical sweeteners even stevia

I would much prefer that you lower the sugar content in all your shakes. I was buying them but like the 7 friends who were also drinking the shakes have now found alternative shakes with lower sugar content. How about you reconsider the sugar content in your Aldi shakes so that we can again consume your shakes???? I've since spoken to other's who no longer buy these shakes because of the high sugar even though they agreed the flavours were great. It would be wonderful if you gave it some thought to lower the sugar PLEASE.....?? Kind regards, Deidre
